$1.5 Million in Back Wages and Penalties for FLSA Violations by Energy Company

Friday, September 9, 2016

An investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division found that three subsidiaries of Chevron Corporation violated the Fair Labor Standards Act’s overtime provisions when they failed to pay hourly field operators for the hours they worked during mandatory pre-shift relief meetings, where they turned over their duties to employees on the next shift.

Investigators found Chevron Products Company in San Ramon, Chevron Pipeline Company in Bellaire, Texas and Chevron North America Exploration and Production Company in Houston, failed to pay workers fully. 

The division announced that Chevron will pay more than $750,000 in overtime back wages and an equal, additional amount in damages to the affected workers. The investigation also identified recordkeeping violations as the company failed to record accurately the number of hours employees worked.

Based in San Ramon, Chevron is one of the world’s leading integrated energy companies. Its subsidiaries conduct business worldwide in virtually every facet of the energy industry.
